DEMCO supplies reliable electric service to over 108,000 locations, providing new and innovative ideas to the membership, sustaining a continued commitment to our local community.

Service to the members of DEMCO begins with a modern system of transmission and distribution facilities with the capacity and reliability to turn the wheels of the largest industrial user.

The system includes ten metering points for wholesale power and 41 substations for system reliability. The primary voltage is 69 kV with 230 kV metering points and substation facilities available. The distribution system primary voltages are 14.4/24.9 kV and 7.62/13.2 kV. DEMCO also provides two mobile substations of 20 MVA and 10 MVA capacity. The electrical system is continually monitored by a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system (SCADA) to detect system failures.
